When 3,000 of the finest labor and employment lawyers from more than 100 nations form an alliance dedicated to assisting employers, the result is a powerful legal resource for management: the Employment Law Alliance. With a presence in all 50 U.S. states, and more than 300 cities around the globe, we are backed by the strength and resources of some of the world’s finest and most established law firms.

A wage-and-hour dispute in New York and an employee handbook in New Delhi; a plant opening in Taipei and a plant closing in Toronto; a union negotiation in Barcelona and a wrongful discharge lawsuit in Boston; a top salesperson in Mexico City takes your customer list to a competitor in Milan. Today’s employers face a variety of complex issues. And because every decision they make can have far-reaching consequences, smart employers want legal guidance that is comprehensive and pro-active so that today’s solution doesn’t become tomorrow’s problem.
Many law firms market themselves as “national” or “international,” claiming to have several branch offices – but their nearest branch may be far from where the client needs help. And will that branch actually have labor and employment lawyers with the breadth and depth of experience the client really needs? The Employment Law Alliance does.
Because we have lawyers worldwide, there truly is coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether you need assistance in the middle of the night or you just need to move quickly on an international labor problem, ELA lawyers can handle your concerns on one side of the world while you sleep on the other side.

We will put together a national or international team of attorneys for you. A team leader will coordinate communication, providing continuity and consistency, and thus a single, seamless legal resource that is truly integrated and working in your best interest.

Labor and employment law is vast and complex. It differs from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The issues that demand attention range from the every day to the extraordinary. Every employer should have a dependable place to turn for legal help. Whether the need is for advice and counsel, training and education, or representation in the courtroom or meeting room, great employers deserve great lawyers. They’re here, in the Employment Law Alliance.
